re: ULM to Indy Bowl


It is really sad that La Tech turned down the opportunity to have a game with great regional appeal and lots of fun just because they are Tech.

News Star

Sounds like the Tech Athletic Department doesn't have their story straight yet either.

quote:


Louisiana Tech associate sports information director Patrick Walsh said athletics director Bruce Van De Velde would likely not want to comment when contacted Saturday night, and that the Bulldogs are waiting to see how the bowl picture plays out in the next 24 hours.

“There’s still some options available for us,” Walsh said. “I don’t know if we declined it or not declined it. I know there are options out there. We are waiting for some things to play our first.”


"or not declined it" really?

Its a shame that it can't happen because tech wants to play in an equally shitty bowl somewhere else against someone not named ULM...

Why are ULM fans so butt hurt here? This is the first time in ULM history that y'all will play @ IBOWL....you should be happy. I can understand LSU fans being MAD cause they're going to a less than desirable bowl (for their stature)..but calling Tech fan base a bunch of pu$$ies for not wanting to go back to the same stadium that they played A&M less than 2 months ago is rather dumb.



It's Tech's arrogance. Sure, you had a great season. But y'all act like y'all are big time. This attitude of never wanting to play ULM is downright ridiculous. You're not LSU, or a University of Texas. You're that same 10k student enrolled school in Cow-town, La.

There's no problem with aiming high, but when you burn bridges (we're too good/prestigious to play sun belt schools) then you can expect everyone else to laugh at you.

I just want to congratulate ULM for a great season. Could care less about Tech. It's a shame for their fans that they don't see the value of this game. We'll enjoy shreveport all the more without them.

Hit the nail on the head. Just excited to be in a bowl game. Even better that it's right down the road.

Do any ULM fans know if any of the six or seven starters lost to injury will make it back for the Indy Bowl? Thanks.

ULM has had an incredible year when you account for all the starters they've lost over the course of the season. If Browning doesn't go down for two games they would have at least one more win.....over OoLALA.

You failed to mention that Tech played 13 games/ ULM played 12. Why can't you stay on your own thread and just leave ULM alone?

Apparently the Lady Techsters have bigger stones than the Bulldog football team.

re: ULM to Indy Bowl


To sassyav regarding where I got my information and you called me out over it. Now that it's over, I can now tell you and the other Tech fans that my information is first hand because I serve on a Bowl Selection Committee. There were statements made on the MSB by Tech fans that were completely not true and I tried to tell you that. I feel horrible for the Seniors on the team. The egos of a few people in Ruston caused this and there was no reason for that. I have been a member of TD for a long time and don't post much. However, I will not hesitate to post when I see statements that are outright false, which I saw last night. Again, I feel horrible for the Players, they deserve much better from the AD.

So you are saying the Tech AD contacted the Indy bowl last Thursday night about an invite, but when told they would have to play ULM they declined?

If so then the story from the Tech AD saying that they asked the Indy Bowl for more time on Saturday is false... ?
